This Eclipse plugin allows Lotus Notes users to browse Delicious bookmarks (http://delicious.com) in the Notes sidebar panel. The plugin also supports an offline mode which might be useful if the Delicious web site cannot be accessed.
In addition to the end user functionality there are two interesting techniques used that could be reused in other applications:
- Generic REST client library (com.ibm.notes.rest.client plugin)
The REST client API is a simple implementation to do REST read operations. If there is a demand from the community we might extend it (JavaDoc, write operations) and package it up as a separate Eclipse feature.
- Derby storage module for Delicious (com.ibm.rcp.delicious.derby plugin)
This plugin shows how the Derby database that comes with Notes can be used to store data, in this case for offline data for Delicious bookmarks.
